Census 2021 results

Census 2021 results are the data and supporting commentary on the population and households in England and Wales from Census 2021.

At the Office for National Statistics (ONS), we released the first results from Census 2021 on Tuesday 28 June 2022. We aim to release all the main results within two years of the census.

We will publish the results in phases on the ONS website, and what we produce will grow richer with each phase.

In each phase, we will publish commentary or analysis alongside the data to support and explain them.

You can find more information about these phases on the Census 2021 release plans (opens in a new tab)  page of the ONS website.
